Introduction to the Upper School – Huntsburg Campus on Wednesday, November 6, 2019

We invite you to hear Hershey Upper School students, faculty, and staff share the exciting development of our Upper School curriculum frameworks. Learn about the Upper School program and what Montessori has to offer in support of excellence in pre-collegiate education.  We will discuss the rigors of academics and the approach that is taken to ensure students are well prepared for college and for life after high school. Students and Upper School teachers will present how core high school academic skills, college selection process, college credit and individualized courses of study integrate with our project-based learning environments. Students will share examples of real-life problem-solving in the Northeast Ohio region, working with specialists in the professional fields of applied study and parallel studies on global issues. Teachers will present how essential life skills expand while adolescents take on genuine leadership roles.

Appetizers will be served at 6 pm with the presentation following promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Hershey Montessori School Provides Student Busing

It’s True. We Provide School Bus Transportation!

 

It may have been our best kept secret, though it was never intended to be. Hershey Montessori School offers school bus services for our Middle and Upper School students attending our Huntsburg Campus.

Options include one-way or round trips for our Day and Interim Boarding Students.

Pricing ranges from $780 to $3,900 per year, depending on the service option selected.

We are listening to the needs of our parent community and continually evaluating the need for additional stops to accommodate the busing needs of our students.

We also provide inter-campus shuttle service from Hershey’s Concord Campus to Hershey’s Huntsburg Campus five days a week free of charge.

Breaking New Ground

Breaking New Ground

On May 12th, 2016, Hershey Montessori School celebrated the groundbreaking of a new building at the Huntsburg Campus that will house the completion of the Upper School.

“Every time Hershey Montessori School has expanded their programming, it’s because the students themselves want it. They ask for it. They express an interest to continue their Montessori education. The students at Hershey Montessori School, especially at the middle school level, are already very engaged in running small businesses, in growing some of their own food, and solving problems on the land. What will be possible for older students is to continue that work at a much higher, more sophisticated level. This is a microcosm of society on this farm.” – Laurie Ewert-Krocker, Upper School Program Director

The groundbreaking was a historic event because once the building is finished, Hershey Montessori School will be one of the first Montessori schools in the world to serve a complete continuum for infants through 18 years of age. “Education should not limit itself to seeking new methods for a mostly arid transmission of knowledge: its aim must be to give the necessary aid to human development. This world, marvelous in its power, needs a ‘new man.’ It is therefore the life of man and his values that must be considered. If ‘the formation of man’ becomes the basis of education, then the coordination of all schools from infancy to maturity, from nursery to university, arises as a first necessity.” -Dr. Maria Montessori

Already, Hershey Montessori School has impacted 500 schools around the world through people visiting, learning about their practices, methods, and philosophies, and by Hershey Montessori School hosting the AMI Orientation to Adolescence during the summer months at the Huntsburg Campus. With the expansion of the Upper School, Hershey Montessori School will, once again, be on the cutting edge of Montessori education, and will provide a basis for similar programs to model.

As alumni, we can be grateful and excited about the role that we played in the development of Hershey Montessori School – the educators learned from the time that we spent there and the feedback from our parents was important in the growth process as well! Hershey Montessori School’s impact expands far beyond current students and their families. We are part of the growing Hershey Montessori School community and will always be able to return to its campuses and be met with open arms.

Thank you for your continued support of Hershey Montessori School!

Sincerely,

Makella Webster

Hershey Montessori School Alumni Coordinator
